Management Magazine August 2022
As we got ready for the much-awaited elections in Kenya, the rest of the world celebrated the World Breastfeeding Week between 1st and 7th August. Not to say that Kenyans do not acknowledge it- The ministry of health, led by CS Mutahi had foreseen our pre-occupation with the elections and had chosen to celebrate this week earlier- 1st -7th July. The focus this year was on the links between breastfeeding and good nutrition, food security and reduction of inequalities. This month, therefore, it is only natural that we shine the light on women in leadership as well as matters pertaining the well-being of the female workforce.
